Hotel Bar

“Galaxy Bar is the Hilton’s iconic rooftop bar and offers fantastic city views as well as expertly made cocktails. Throughout the year, the bar is a meeting spot for locals as well as visitors, and the atmosphere is luxurious without being intimidating or pretentious. Drinks are expertly made though on the more costly side for drinks in Athens. Get there to watch the sunset, and then enjoy watching the city at night. Mon - Thu: 5:00 pm - 3:00 am Fri - Sat: 5:00 pm - 4:00 am Sun: 5:00 pm - 3:00 am”
